The folks over at Super-Fan Builds have created some truly remarkable things for the most hardcore of fans. Some of their creations include a real-life version of the double decker couch from The LEGO Movie and an Iron Man Hulkbuster armor high chair. Now they’ve combined two different time machines into one for the ultimate 80s movie mash-up.
Arguably the most iconic time machine in cinema history is the DeLorean from Back to the Future. Meanwhile, perhaps the most ridiculous is the titular device from Hot Tub Time Machine. And the folks at Super-Fan Builds decided to combine the two into a DeLorean hot tub time machine, and it’s just as glorious as you’d imagine. Read More »
The British alternative rock group Coldplay is one of those bands that people either love or hate. However, even if you’re one of the people who just can’t stand the vocal stylings of frontman Chris Martin and the sounds the rest of the band plays, I think you’re going to love them for a little bit after to see a video recorded at a recent concert.
Chris Martin has a son named Moses who is 10 years old. And while the lead singer is out on tour, his son had just one request, and that was for him to play a song from their favorite movie, Back to the Future. Not only did Chris Martin make his son’s dreams come true, but he came through in a way that makes all other fathers look bad by having Michael J. Fox come out and play “Johnny B. Goode,” just like he did in the movie.

There’s a lot to love about George Miller’s Best Picture nominated action adventure Mad Max: Fury Road. Every facet of the film is impressive, but undoubtedly one of the coolest elements of the film are the post-apocalyptic vehicles that all the characters right around in. There are classic hot rods turned into fast-moving tanks, semi-trucks turned into death machines in eighteen wheels, and that vehicle with the Doof Warrior that is essentially a mobile metal concert from a Dr. Seuss nightmare.
But what if a bunch of other famous vehicles from film and television got a Mad Max makeover? What would cars like the DeLorean time machine from Back to the Future, the Mystery Machine from Scooby-Doo or even the staircase truck from Arrested Development look like if they were modified to look like vehicles from the Wasteland? Illustrator Scott Park has answers to all those questions and plenty more with a cool new set of drawings that you can check out after the jump. Read More »
From run-ins with Biff, to the use of phrases like “Great Scott” and “Whoa, this is heavy,” it’s no secret that there are plenty of gags that are reused throughout the entire Back to the Future trilogy. A new video puts all three of the films side-by-side and syncs up the sequences that see Marty McFly waking up after being knocked out in each of the movies. You might be surprised to see just how similar each sequence is, from the shot composition, to the musical cues and more.

But a new video rounds up some specific examples of characters that you may not have known were written as insults, whether it’s to people, or an entire corporation.
